Clear Channel Outdoor (NYSE:CCO), one of the largest outdoor advertising companies in the world, and BlueFocus Communications Group (BFCG, 300058.SZ), one of the largest communications groups in China, today announced a groundbreaking multi-year deal to promote prominent Chinese brands to American consumers via Clear Channel’s digital out-of-home media in Times Square and in major U.S. airports, starting with San Francisco International Airport (SFO). Clear Channel Outdoor developed a winning proposal for BFCG which leveraged unique and powerful assets in Times Square through Clear Channel Spectacolor and at SFO through Clear Channel Airports. BFCG invested in and founded a brand new company – Beijing Blueskyfall Media Advertising Co., Ltd. to operate this project.

Starting out as a public relations consultancy in 1996 and listed on Shenzhen Stock Exchange in 2010, BlueFocus has developed into a conglomerate specializing in digital marketing, public relations, creative advertising planning/media agency, events management and international communications. Committed to the strategic goals of “digitalization” and “globalization,” BFCG envisions its business revenues will be ten times the present level in ten years. Over the past few years, the rapid growth of BFCG has drawn wide attention from the global communications industry. On the Holmes Report Global Ranking of PR Firms, BFCG has soared from the 75 th place in 2007 to the 19 th place in 2013; it has won several Gold SABRE Awards and IPRA Golden World Awards. In the context of globalization, BFCG’s leadership teams in China and the U.S. will focus on helping their clients succeed with U.S. consumers via strategic marketing and media partnerships.

In making the announcement, Peter Mao, President of BlueFocus Communications Group said, “An increasing number of Chinese cities and commercial brands are eyeing global markets. We recognize their needs for building brands globally, and the U.S. market is essential to the success of any brand with global aspirations. We chose Clear Channel Outdoor as our partner because of their leadership position in the most important U.S. markets including New York’s Times Square, their comprehensive portfolio of solutions, and because of their pioneering success creating consumer engagement with social media and other digital platforms.”
